After months of anticipation, the first season of GANT by Michael Bastian arrived at Saks Fifth Avenue last night with a celebratory party co-hosted by GQ. With a collection inspired by the sport of lacrosse, Saks set aside a special shop-in-shop at its Manhattan flagship made to look like a locker room. The retailer offered gift bags to the first 50 customers who spent $350 or more on GANT product. The custom canvas totes included a copy of Take Ivy (which also premiered yesterday), a signed copy of Bastian’s Style Guide, an iPod, Kiehl’s grooming products, a pair of GANT by Michael Bastian sunglasses, and a few other essentials.
The S/S 11 GANT by Michael Bastian collection will be unveiled on Wednesday, September 15th during New York Fashion Week, and Stylesight will be on-hand to cover the event.
